Gators and YAP daily care
Gators and YAP are the core of the after school programs, covering all of the grades from 7:15am until 5:30pm, every day that the school building is open.
The two programs are similar, providing well-supervised, age-appropriate activities for students. Gators is for Nursery through fourth grade, and YAP (or “Young Adult Place”) is for fifth grade and older.
In addition to free play on Gordon’s playgrounds and other outdoor spaces that are perfect for running around, nature walks, and exploration, students can participate in a variety of programmed activities each week, led by talented and experienced Gators and YAP staff.
YAP offers students in fifth to eighth grades a quiet, supervised study hall each afternoon. Students can work independently or in small groups, and spend time outdoors or in the field house as availability and staffing allows.
The rules and policies outlined in the Gordon Handbook apply during the hours before and after classes. This includes the prohibitions on cell phones, iPods and electronic games.
